    We also do a fair amount of work in the travel industry and so when we saw a series of recent blog posts from Dutch airline KLM detailing its social media strategy we could not pass up the opportunity to review it here.

Read all about their detailed social strategy in parts 1 (history), 2 (the operations, Social Media Hub), 3 (campaigns) and 4 (strategy) on their blog. It’s a common refrain.

    Blogs can easily be fed to Twitter. Even if you have a blog, how hard is it to put 140 characters together? Two questions always pop up when people visit my Twitter account: Why is your background so boring? When do you think you’ll break 100K followers? The answer to the first question is easy – my graphic design skills are nil, I don’t want to use a free service, and I don’t want to pay someone to make it look good. Besides, it’s about the content, not the background, right? The second answer is even easier. Never. From there, we continued to grow.

Education is key – Before sharing something on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Path or a blog, take a step back and think about how that can be seen by others. It took a split second for Joel Ward to become a playoff hero to Washington Capitals fans. By the time the Capitals were done celebrating Ward’s overtime goal that knocked the Boston Bruins out of the playoffs; Ward was the center of a different emotion online. Image -    clydeorama.
